The hit parade of Multicharts.net continue with advanced updates on managed vs unmanaged C++ DLL coding

HI there
Well, I am happy to report I am one step away from showcasing this solution of calling my code generated C++ DLLs from this proposed open source trading platform. I will let you know right away when that happens so stay tuned. In the mean time, here are some continued opinions of Multicharts with some advanced .NET development.
1. Youtube video on Hit limitations of multicharts.net framework and pinvoke in Microsoft .NET DLLs
2. Who is up for an Easter Egg hunt with Multicharts.net framework? Anyone anyone? Still waiting?
3. One’s view of this of Microsoft .NET CLR managed vs unmanaged Visual C++ code for a trader
4. Just posted working source code for C# .NET client to call C++ managed wrapper DLL to call unmanaged C++ static library
As they say, Geek on.
Thanks Bryan

Someone responded on me moving on from Multicharts.net via email:
Bryan,
This is the worst news I could expect from you. I really liked the idea of Multicharts .NET being the platform on which all will be built.
Now, all that excitement has vanished.
I don’t know what to think.
Feel disappointed.
My Response:
Hey. If you are into Easter Egg hunts with an undocumented framework. Go for it. I don’t have time to waste as said in this video:

I don’t expect my membership to go through the same punishment. There are pros and cons of everything but I seriously spent nearly a week on this software. I just wish they documented and had better training resources available. Expecting me to fork over $1500 is just another form of punishment I don’t want to put myself through. Even Big Mike at Bigmiketrading.com moved away from it for some unknown reason but I am suspecting why.

I am revisiting old trading platform as Multicharts.net framework is proving to be frustrating to work with

I am revisiting old trading platform as Multicharts.net framework is proving to be frustrating to work with

As according to their forum, I have seen posting like:

http://www.multicharts.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=12139

I will start my post by showing how much development in MultiCharts .Net has frustrated me. There is little to no resource available to help a beginner. I have almost 2 years of experience with multiple trading platforms and APIs and i have never seen anything that is so scratchy with the resources it offers.

Now to one of many issues i have been facing. I want to take full control & track any orders that my strategy generates. I see no order events that can be used. Also, when trying to do some hit & trial, i run into trouble finding help about many of the Classes/Interfaces of the API. They are not even mentioned in the help file that comes with the editor. To name a few: IOrderControl, COrderPriced…

 

etc..etc..

So for the $1500 or even $9000, I would have hoped to see better resources. As a result, what does open source not give me over this?

P.S. You really expect my 100+ members to work with this as I cannot figure it out? I was really excited with the amazing GUI but the back end development end is well…

 

UPDATES: On this revisited open source trading platform, I am able to build from source which was never possible. I am able to load the strategy DLLs easily. I will see if I can call my generated Matlab DLL. If this is possible and can be tested, it could possibly be bye bye MC.net. I will do some videos on this if it works!

Wow! I built a Matlab Coder DLL with pairs trading for my Multicharts.net trading environment platform. Done with .NET and Visual Studio

This is kind of exciting with Matlab Builder NE toolbox. I will follow up on this as attempt to integrate into my Multicharts. This was pretty quick to do!

I need to reverse engineer the understanding of the strategies, indicators, and signals for Multicharts.net

Lack of example Multicharts.net Microsoft .NET C# source code for indicators and signals so using Matlab Builder NE toolbox

I was surprised that there is little example code in C#. It seems that there is quite a bit of Easy Language code which is compatible with the Power Language version of Multicharts. I am starting to think it might be better just to switch the algorithms to Matlab M script and build .NET assemblies. I would do this through this the Matlab Builder NE toolbox. I am just thinking there is a bigger and better Matlab community versus the Multicharts. Lets see what happens with this approach. See my demo of integrating Multicharts.NET and Matlab/Simulink together.
